Just for the fun of it, why don't we all list the reasons why we don't like Obama, and even better, lets make suggestions on how to fix the problem.

Cons... No pros

Well to kick off for you scud...

There is way too much uncertainty with that man.
-I swear when he was first was running he was a Muslim, after he was announced as the democratic nominee he was suddenly christian.
-He has elected Hilary Clinton as his secretary of state... there's a reason she wasn't nominated as democratic nominee for president.
-His experience is almost non-existent compared to other candidates
-Of course cause he will probably re-enact the assault "black" rifle ban
-Try to sign in stamping laws for rounds
-He's a democrat. And they tend to be idealists and promise things that are "good in principle" but are not possible in a republic and the United States is still a REPUBLIC not a DEMOCRACY.
-Personally I am studying to be a Doctor... and Universal Health care will completely kill my industry and take it from the countries who have tried Universal Health care and they will tell you it doesn't work for the benefit of the Majority not the Minority. Did you know that the most money that is spent by the United States government is spent on Medicaid and Medicare... and take it from who has worked in health care they both suck for the medical field and for the patients also.

-And last but not least that his natural birth is still not proven even according to political science PhD's... He's been way too secretive about it when McCain came right out made his known, and anyone notice on the "scanned" copy that the TWO state seals that are STAMPED on the certificate are MISSING.

And I feel comfortable saying this on here. I am happy that we have elected a black president I am not a racist and I understand that racism still has a good grip in our country, but I do not believe he was the right black man.

My thought

Because he has no idea what to do as president. I belive he wanted to be president all because of every president was white and he wanted to disrupt it. Im not being racsist but its just my thought.

To fix the problem: I would tell him he got what he wanted now resign and let a more expericed person take over.

-Before they start throwing crap around about our "economic crisis" and that it is Bush's War that's causing it... Take an economic class... any qualified PhD will tell you that it takes between 6-8 years before an administration has an effect on the economy... hmmm that would be Clinton's (a democrat) term I believe...

-And another addition to Clinton is that when went into office and reviewed the financial statements for the United States and I quote "Holy shit, I'm not going to be able to do what I wanted to do in 4 years." (I bet you Obama is going to be saying the same thing in a month)

WELL SERVED.....I don't think many people know that. I tell people this all the time and they look at me like I have two heads.

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses

1. he is a democrat and I just don't believe in the things he believes in...
a. Universal Healthcare
b. Higher taxes
c. Gun control
d. Abortion

2. He is totally inexperienced in leadership...and nobody can argue this. He has led nothing of consequence.

3. He has already showed that what he said he would do, he won't...he has backtracked on almost every issue so far...but then again, all politicians do this.

4. I don't feel he is honest at all

5. I have a problem with his associations from the past/present. Wright, Ayers, Illinois politics, Tony Resko. I mean these guys were outright terrorist, racist and a crook! If those aren't red flags, then I didn't do 26 years of active duty service.

6. He's a lawyer and while lawyers do serve a purpose, so many are crooks and opportunists of bad fortune...which goes back to leadership, he is a lawyer who speaks well and wrote a book. His story is endearing, and moving I grant you that.

In the end, what Americans did was vote against Bush and the Republicans and it just so happened the Dems had a Pop-culture figure get the nomination...as a country, our youth (my opinion) is more socially and morally bankrupt than any generation before them.

Right now, we are in a war for our lives...but most people don't even know it...because we have really shielded everyone from war...there is no personal involvment for too many people.

OK...I hate being totally negative:
So,
1. He is one of the best speakers I have ever heard and of course, he far outshadows what we had in Bush over the past 8 years...no doubt.

2. He brings hope for a lot of people.
3. He is inpiring to every black person in the US...no doubt to others as well (Hispanics, Indians, etc etc). It's good overall to the country that we elected a black man as President.
4. He is extremely intelligent or so it seems...time will tell.
5. He seems willing to listen to everyone around him, even those that may disagree with him...time will tell once again.

OK...some other things I would like to point out.
1. There are more black coaches in the NFL than ever - well, there was until Dungy retired and Crennel was fired.
2. Our first black Superbowl winning coach was just two years ago
3. Our first Republican female candidate for VP
4. President Bush tripled the amount of aid we sent to Africa for AIDS and other issues.
5. Oprah Winfrey has been called the most influential woman in the US, She is very rich, estimated at 1.5 billion dollars
6. African-American History Month: Black-owned Business
Saturday February 11, 2006
The Census Bureau reports that receipts from black-owned businesses totaled $92.7 billion in 2002, up 30 percent from 1997. The rate at which black-owned businesses increased their receipts was 22 percent higher than the national average.
The 1.2 million black-owned businesses in 2002 was up by more than 370,000, or 45 percent, since 1997. An estimated 94,862 black-owned firms had paid employees, with receipts of $69.8 billion or about $735,586 per firm.

Black business owners were more likely to hold graduate degrees when they started or acquired ownership in their business (about 1-in-4) than the national average (19 percent).

Just sayin'

Obama's faults

1- He is a liberal. I differentiate between Democrats and Liberals. he is a liberal. No way fix that
2- Even if he wants to take a strong stance against foreign leaders who support terror, he won't, because he doesn't want to look like Bush. The best way to fix that is to admit that he overestimated the usefulness of dialogue with terrorists and sympathetic nations.
3- He will sign a permanent AWB if it comes across his desk. The way to fix this is for him to read the US Constitution and agree to meet with me like I have suggested on his website

These are my primary problems with him, but as he is now my Commander in Chief, it makes no difference what I think.

What I dislike.

I don't care for only doing dislikes, I may throw some positive stuff in at the end. I just need to thihk of some that haven't been said already.

1. He has surounded himself with many of the Clinton administrations hacks and henchmen.

2. He would institute and A.W.B. permanately, and more broad than Clintons "94" ban including firearms that are traditionaly viewed as hunting arms.

3. He has a very Socialist view of things, always saying how the government can be the savior of the peoples problems.

4. He picked Joe Biden as a running mate.

5. He wants to try and reason with the Iranian leader. I can't even begin to spell his name. (Ajhmed Denijad?) I believe there is no reasoning with a zealot.

I have to give some good points, few people are all bad and I don't believe in purely tearing someone apart. There are always some redeeming qualities.

1. A very good orator.

2. Shows a youthful exhuberence.

3. Shows intelligence and knowledge. Well prepared in most cases.

I know that these are "face value" type qualities and even when he says something that I am so against I don't feel the bile in the back of my throat like when Clinton spoke. None of these pros are something that shows character or ability to lead this country, but I just can't dwell on all negatives about somebody. Even if we're polar opposites in thought and beliefs, and I don't believe he is anything but a Christian of convenience. If that makes sense.

I must disagree with all those who do mention said good qualities...

Being a good orator means only two things that he can give a good speech and that he has the masses to follow him blindly into a situation that might not be the best for our country.

I am a young person but I will tell you that being young and active individual is not a good quality in politics, what matters in politics is experience know when someone is conning you... we don't expect the president to be able to run a 100 meters in 12 seconds or even 15 seconds, that's why he has Marine 1, Air Force 1, etc...
The only thing else that might be good is an ideal that would break from the norm to fix problems... unfortunately he's a democrat and I'm pretty sure that he's not going to uphold ideals that would benefit the majority of the country

And last I cannot pick on his intelligence because God knows I'm not going to an Ivy league however I'm a firm believer that most "book-learning" does not apply to the real world and it is exactly how undeniable mentioned it... superficial <-- to use another word

Presidents running

A bit on the running ability of our former President. G-dub runs around 13 min two mile. That is a 6:30 min mile pace. That's a very fast pace even for a young guy. Hell, my best two mile time as a young infantry soldier was 12:28, and he's doing almost that at his age. I'd hate to have been on his detail while he was running. I heard they had to station secret service guys to run relay with him.
